The metropolitan City of Turin has established the "European and International Projects and Programs" Specialized Unit within the Economic Development Department.
The activation of this function takes place at a particularly relevant moment: the European cohesion policy 2021-2027 programming period includes for the first time a Strategic Objectives (SO) specifically dedicated to territorial development strategies: the SO5 "a Europe closer to citizens, by supporting locally-led development strategies and sustainable urban development across the EU".
Two specific objectives are assigned to the Specialized Unit:
- Promotion and coordination of projects to be funded with supranational resources, ensuring the consistency with the Metropolitan fundamental functions and the strategic plan.
- Positioning of the metropolitan City of Turin strategies with respect to European programming.
